using mysql

Post icon  Posted 09 July 2007 - 11:02 AM

Using VS C# Express, I'd like to interface with a mysql database. I've tried a LOT of methods and I just can't seem to find one that works well. Can anyone recommend the best way to interface with a mysql database using visual studios express? Thanks! :)

how well does this solution distribute. I can't be forcing my customers to go download mysql drivers and set up connections and such. Would this require others to install the drivers before being able to run my software?

It distributes fine...the needed drivers/includes would be bundled with your code. you should never have your customers do things like set connections - that is the programmers job. Once the proper libraries have been included into the project, they can be programatically activated. the article describes the methodology.
